The most important things in life I learned from my dogs. Most of the rest I learned by screwing up.
Thanks for dropping by!
Most of the MOCs here are working gizmos born of a fascination with gadgets and the science and engineering behind them. Technical LEGOŽ -- my term for building centered on Technic, Power Functions, and Mindstorms elements -- brings out my inner inventor/designer/engineer like no other medium.
Warning: Like this home page, my write-ups are way too long. I know it. I can't help it.
Please feel free to look at any or all of the images and just ignore the verbiage.
Technical LEGOŽ gives me a chance to operate decent simulations of real machines (like the mining truck below) that my wife would never allow in the house or anywhere near it.
Hence, functional realism usually gets top priority, though with some attention to looks.
As you'll see with my Little Black Tank (below), my UniStand, and even with the truck above, I also enjoy cooking up back stories.
Recurring themes of late include working propeller-driven boats and land vehicles, a wind turbine, and other MOCs based on high-speed rotary motion -- including a variety of spinning tops, a 2-DOF gyro, and various flying LEGOŽ rotors (last 2 ready except for video). The Asteroid below is one of my better-looking tops.
